The perfect stocking fillers with Seventeen?

With Christmas literally round the corner we are all in that STRESS stage, so why not make your life ten times easier with affordable stocking fillers? I was very fortunate and lucky enough to be able to collaborate with Seventeen this month! They kindly sent me 3 of their products which would make perfect presents, so if your stuck for ideas this post is for you.

I am obsessed with matte lipsticks, well pretty much any lipstick! This is the season for the staple bold red lip, is it even Christmas if you don't wear red? Seventeen sent me a red lipstick from their new Mega Matte Collection. The new range has 12 colours for you to choose from, priced at £4.49 pretty good right and if your mega fussy with choosing colours then you have plenty to select from. 

I was sent the 'Lava you a lot'  lipstick, a very bright red, nourishing on the lips not drying them out, unlike a lot of matte lipsticks. Very easy to apply and fairly long lasting, I always find with bold coloured lipsticks I have to re apply despite if the colour lasts a good amount of time, just because a bolder colour is more noticeable when it becomes patchy.

However love this colour can't wait to wear it religiously over this festive period.

The second one they sent me from the range was a deep purple called ' Violet summer'. I'm not a huge fan of the colour purple, personally don't feel like I'm much of a vibrant soul to wear it and simply don't suit it. Again the colour is very bold and matte, long lasting and nourishing on the lips but just not a ME colour. 

Finally for all the blush lovers, Seventeen have a blusher stamp, a pretty good idea to be honest and a lot easier when it comes to application. Again I'm not a huge fan of blusher because I'm quite pale so try to stay away from making my cheeks even redder. However this blush is simply lush, I love the packaging and the colour is to die for, its a darkish pink, if you don't like darker pinks this is very easy to blend out. 

So I want to thank Seventeen for sending me these lush products. They would be the perfect gift for any girl this Christmas, I know I wouldn't complain if I received some lipsticks.
